Bullet Journal Quotes

Since my planner starts July 2016 and ends July 2017 I’ve been using it as a bullet journal for the summer until I start school again next week. I’ve been writing quotes, tips and odd bits of information in the space for each day instead of homework. Now it’s the end of summer I have collected a lot of quotes that I hope you guys might like. They may seem random but they do correspond with what i did or was feeling on the day.

Gift Swap

Dex sucks at poetry. He has never written a poem before other than in like, 6th grade English class, and that is not an experience he wants to revisit. Dex has never been great at words, and writing code is usually the only writing he likes to do. He likes machines because they don’t try to talk to you. He understands machines and how they work and what they need. Poetry, not so much. He doesn’t get why some poems rhyme and some don’t, and why they need metaphors. Some poems just make no fucking sense to him, and why the hell do they have to be all convoluted? But he always likes the poems that Nursey writes for him. Nursey gave everything he had into his poetry, and you could tell. Dex would often roll his eyes whenever Nursey read a poem to him, but that was mainly just to annoy Nursey, because he secretly could listen to Nursey read his poetry all day. So for their anniversary, Dex decides to write Nursey a poem for a change. He sits down at his desk for a few hours, and in the end it’s clunky and made of random bits and pieces, but he thinks about the poem like a machine that he’s trying to put together.

Nursey is at a loss of what to get Dex for their anniversary. He thinks about writing Dex a poem, but he writes Dex poems all the time, so he wants to do something new and different. Nursey saw writing as creating something with your hands, so he decides to try to be creative in another way: by trying to build something for Dex. Nursey knows that he’s clumsy as all hell and is no good with a toolkit, but he wants to make something for Dex anyway. He thinks Dex will appreciate it, it’ll show that he actually does pay attention when Dex talks about mechanics and building shit (even though Nursey likes to pretend that he doesn’t pay attention just to piss off Dex). He decides to make him one of those mini desks that people use in bed to do their homework, because honestly Dex gets way too stressed out while he’s doing homework and needs to chill more, so doing homework in bed might help. Nursey goes to Home Depot and definitely buys some of the wrong tools after like two hours of wandering around aimlessly, but eventually he gets what he needs. The next day, while Dex is in class, Nursey sits in the basement of the Haus and works on building the mini desk. In the end, he only injures himself twice, and the desk is a little lopsided, but he hopes Dex will like the creativity and passion he puts into it. Nursey thinks about all of the words that Dex will write on the desk, and it makes him happy.

Nursey can’t believe that his boyfriend wrote him a fucking poem, can’t believe how much he loves this stupid boy and his red hair and mechanic’s hands. He can’t stop reading the poem, and after a day he’s memorized it. He pins it up over his desk so he can look at it whenever he’s writing.

Dex stares at the mini desk, and almost can’t believe it. Nursey made this? The desk is made from sturdy wood and even though it was a little lopsided, it was exactly what he needed for his homework. Perfectly imperfect, just like them. Dex can’t stop smiling, and can’t remember the last time he smiled this much.

THEORY TIME 2 (spoilers inbound)

OK so some stuff has happened, and i am having quite a bit of trouble processing it so this is gonna be super long and jumbled. lets see how this goes.


-isabella was killed by oswald

(-but people tend not to actually die on gotham so im not even counting this as solid fact)

-oswald is doing everything in his power to force ed to forget about her (even if he has to use some pretty nasty manipulation)

-oswald feels at least a little bad about killing isabella, mostly bc he knows how much it hurt ed and bc hes scared ed will find out

-ed knows isabella was murdered, and he at least claims to think it was butch who did it

-(according to the next episode promo) tabs and butch are missing, and babs is on the hunt

-ed is going to seek revenge (most likely on butch, but possibly oswald depending on the situation)

-babs will give ed info about isabella in episode 11

-oswalds dad will be back in some way in a later episode


-who is isabella? im 98% certain she has some bigger significance - she’s too perfect to be a coincidence. same face and personality as miss kringle, only tailored to be perfect for ed in every way. obviously still suspicious

-is anyone in the gcpd going to question why there was an identical clone of miss kringle dating ed nygma and mysteriously dead in a train accident

-what role does the court of owls play in all of this? did they send isabella? who knows

-who actually kidnapped butch and tabs - was it ed and os or someone else?

-does ed believe it was butch, or is he just tricking oswald so he can get revenge?

-what info will babs be giving ed; are they going to team up to take down oswald? 

-when will fish come back into play? will she at all?

-in what way is ozzies dad back? who is he with?



-isabella is a spy for the court of owls (a possible option ive seen is that shes actually isabelle cheranova (echo) from the comics, a russian telepathic spy)

-isabella is some sort of clone or something sent by butch/tabs to get revenge on ed and ozzie. where would they get the resources for this though? is fish somehow involved?

-isabella is just somehow a really big coincidence and is actually just a normal person who is obsessed with riddles and doomed relationships and has a weird choking fetish (and i REALLY hope this isnt true)


-he will find out oswald killed isabella, probably very quickly. 

option a) it turns out isabella was evil, ed forgives oswald, everything is peachy. option b) ed becomes furious and swears revenge then leaves                         option c) ed tries to kill oswald, resulting in an angsty and teary confession of oswalds love, which ed either accepts or gets mad at (”if you really loved me you wouldnt have tried to hurt me like this” type thing)           

-he already knows it was oswald and he’s just tricking him. his face and his stuttering before he said butch are making me a teensy bit worried

-he will team up with babs to get revenge on oswald, leading to that clip of him talking to tabs and babs

-he really believes it was butch and trusts oswald too much to suspect him (aww). he and oswald will kidnap butch and tabs to try to get revenge, babs will negotiate for them by promising info on isabella. i figure she could reveal either that isabella was evil or that oswald killed her

For the midseason finale

I can see a few options for it, and no matter what itll be super dramatic and angsty bc what else would they do.

-ed ends up hating oswald and spends the next half of the season trying to get his revenge and goes full on riddler. will he ever forgive oswald? will they somehow end up together by the end of the season? only time will tell

-somehow everything works out and ed and oswald end up together. will it be bc of a lie, will ed still believe oswald is innocent? will he not care about isabella by then? once again, only time will tell

-the court of owls was somehow behind basically everything, everyone is pretty much screwed, im not too certain of much beyond that tbh



Edit: is it just me or when eds stuttering before saying butch, does it kinda look like he’s gonna say “you”? Because if so that’s not a good sign.

After dinner today, my dad told my little brother to go do his homework. In response, after he left, my brother turned to me and asked what I thought his homework was (because today is the day before thanksgiving break). Now, what I wanted to say was, “oh, probably one of those thanksgiving hand turkeys haha.” Instead, what came out of my mouth was, “a thankstuRKEY HAND CHICKEN”

current mood:

WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE ABOUT VIRGINITY?! THIS IS A GOD DAMN CHILDREN’S SHOW! LOOK, I NEVER KNOW WHAT YOURE WRITING ABOUT! SCHWINN, S H U S H, I WANT A SONG! YES, I WILL DO MY HOMEWORK, YES I WILL work in the garden, YES I WILL GO WITH MY GRANDPARENTS…TO ISRAEL! instead i get this nonsense about someone who loses,,,their virginity t-to those with whom they have no affinity?! THIS IS A GOD DAMN CHILDREN’S SHOW! i-i..youre sick, youre in the hospital, you’ve got this…. brain thing. you know what? you know what? im gonna get my son to write the song. where is my son?! HEY! where’s my son? somebody find my son? where’s my son? 


“No, Ron, that doesn’t make sense!” I was trying to help Ron finish his paper in time because Hermione had decided to boycott helping anyone with their homework. 

“But how? Didn’t Snape say that you have to put crushed root of asphodel into the potion?”

I swatted his head in frustration.

“Honestly, do you ever pay attention, even a little in class?”

Ron pouted at me and I rolled my eyes. I looked up to see Fred angrily waving me over.

“I’ll be right back.” Ron ignored me and I left him furiously flipping through his textbook.

“What’s going on?” 

Fred leaned towards me and furiously whispered, “Y/n, nowadays it’s more like you’re dating Ron instead of me!” 

“What are you talking about?” I put my hand on Fred’s chest to try and calm him down. “Love, I was just helping your brother with his homework. Nothing was happening. And anyways, how did you think anything was happening between us? Did you not see how mad we got at each other?”

Fred’s angry, scrunched up eyes unscrunched until they were back to their normal cheery forms. 

“There we go.” I patted my boyfriend’s shoulder, kissed his cheek, and turned back around. “Now I have to get back to helping Ron with his essay.”

Fred grabbed my waist from behind me and pulled me back, giving me a hug.

“Yeah, yeah I love you too.” I smiled and brushed him off to head back to the still-frustrated Ron.


Signs of mental illness I displayed even as a child (incomplete list):

  • problems sleeping including:
    - having a hard time going to sleep
    - peeing my bed
    - crying in my sleep
    - waking up scared and disoriented
    - sometimes falling out of bed
  • being scared of adults including parents and others I knew
  • hiding/ isolating myself at times
  • getting sad for “no reason”, crying over little things
  • being mostly unable to complete homework while being good at doing work in school (seriously everyone just thought it was fortunate that I was still able to keep up instead of asking themselves “Why can this child work in school but not at home? What is wrong in their home?”)
  • downplaying my own problems
  • dissociating - it got called “daydreaming” and “being lazy/slow” and “not paying attention”
  • flashbacks from age 13 onwards (I don’t think anyone knew though)
  • disordered eating by on-and-off following a restrictive ““healthy”“ raw food diet from age 16 onward

This list is only so “short” because I was actively trained not to show signs of abuse/trauma/mental illness. I mean I was/we were trained to not react to triggers, to not flinch or lash out and to always appear happy and carefree.


I feel like Eleven would be easily frustrated with homework, and the kids would try to help but in the end they’d be just as clueless as her. So, instead, Nancy and Jonathan come to the rescue. Nancy is better at explaining things in detail, and Jonathan is better at simplifying things so Eleven can have a better understanding of what to do. With a few blow ups here and there (and a few pencils embedded into the byers’ walls) Eleven is finished with her homework. A proud adoptive brother and a friend’s kind sister smile the next day as Eleven comes home beaming with one of the best grades in her class
